2015年7月8日下午,我校国际部11位志愿者们早早地就在老校区12楼报告厅等待着美国戴维斯长笛乐团的新朋友们。这些志愿者们将在接下来的三天中担任住家小主人的重要角色。他们将负责照顾美国朋友们的衣食住行,并兼做“导游”。短暂而难忘的几天相处后热情的小东道主们用他们的笔写下了他们的美国朋友间的精彩故事。

我很荣幸成为戴维斯长笛演奏者的志愿者,为他们提供在无锡三天的住宿和出行的帮助。我接待的是一位性格开朗可爱活泼的加州本土女孩-Katie。从第一天的期待陌生到后来的熟知谈笑风生,不仅仅是我们愿意迈进一步分享趣事的过程更是中美文化的交流和传递。

作为主人的我,带领她游览了无锡极具特色的景点-蠡园。介绍着蠡园的由来,泛舟在湖光山色中,游览于风景如画的西施庄,浓厚的文化气息熏陶着我们拉近了我们对彼此对无锡更深的体会。与此同时,Katie也是迫不及待的分享着她的经历。欢声笑语中仿佛无锡的每一个角落都充斥着我们满满的欢乐和回忆。我们之间虽然有着些许语言的隔阂但这并不妨碍我们的真诚交流,彼此都在努力和进步,彼此都在试着体验新鲜的事物来为这次旅程刻下无与伦比的篇章。

民以食为天,欣赏美景的同时我们也不忘体验无锡特有的小吃美味。鲜嫩的小笼包,热腾腾的馄饨,不同的吃法不同的口味,让Katie乃至整个团队都体验了不一样的中国风味。

  美好的时光总是十分短暂,音乐会上的慷慨激昂,谈话间心灵的碰触,点点滴滴都历历在目也将永远的印刻在我们深深的脑海里。衷心祝愿我们的外国友人在今后一切顺利,平安幸福!

As an old saying goes, “How happy we are, to greet friends from afar.” The arrival of Davis Youth Flute Choir brought me excitement as well as challenges, for it was the first time in my life that I had ever opened my arms to international students as a host. When my guest Elise hugged me like hugging an old friend, I felt my heart pounding hard.

Since I had lived with several American families when I stayed in the U.S., I had gained some understandings of the life style of American people, which helped me a lot. When I knew that Elise was a vegan, I decided to show full respect to her eating habit, which was totally different from mine. During her stay, all of my family members had vegetarian diet. According to Elise, being a vegan is more than sticking to a healthy eating habit: It is an ethical issue about the rights of animal and environmental protection. My parents and I did have a great time with Elise. We all appreciated her faith in animal protection, and we were glad to know that Elise had a comfortable stay in my place.

Traveling is one of Elise’s hobbies. First time in China, Elise was stoked to take a look. On the 9th of July, we made a group with Dorothy, Rice and their guests Linda and Sara to visit Turtle’s Head Park (Yuan Tou Zhu). With the breeze caressing our facing, we were fascinated by the beauty of nature. Afterwards, other members of the choir and their parents joined the visit.

Hui Shan Government warmly welcomed the foreign friends, and offered copious meals. In the morning, we visited Hui Shan nursing house for elderly people, Xishan Senior High School and Wu Culture Park. During the tour, every one of us was impressed by the peace and happiness of people, and the extensive and profound Chinese culture. In the afternoon, we paid a visit to Grand Buddha of Ling Shan. The Joss, Nine Dragon Fills Bath, and the Tibertan Lama Temple greatly seized the attention of guests and made them exclaim. The Buddhist Temple is the most scandalous. Various artworks, grand lobby, and the exciting performance won high praises. At the end of the day, we went to Yang Shan to visit the model of Chinese countryside construction. We were all exhausted but happy at the end of the day.

Besides the visits to places of interests, we organized great performance. We had a big show in the afternoon of 9th, July. Both Davis Youth Flute Choir and Big Bridge Academy poured their hearts into the show. Music has the magic to connect hearts and souls. Intoxicated in the beautiful music brought by DYFC and BBA, we felt the belt between the guests and us strengthened. The marvelous performance showed their superb skills, as well as their hard work. Their music won the sincere applause of the audience, and I felt truly impressed by their interpretations.

When our guests waved farewell to us, it rained heavily, as if the sky had felt our unwillingness and reluctance to see their leaving. We hugged each other and said Goodbye. The emotion that filled our hearts will always stay.

我接到的交换生Lindsey是整个乐队中最小的,跟我年纪比较相仿,所以也比较聊得来。她的性格友好,随和,开朗,跟她相处很开心。因为她父母都是从中国移民的,所以她能讲很流利的中文,这让我觉得很幸运。

第一天晚上我们去的万象城。她很喜欢逛街,见到这样高端大气的Shopping mall十分激动。她说准备今后来中国上大学,就是觉得这里有许多现代化的高楼商场。她也说了她的一些生活习惯,城市生活等….这让我更加直接地了解到美国的生活,比教科书上更加详细,有意思~

第二天去了很多公园,保界山,渤公岛,馆舍山庄。虽然这些山山水水在美国也不少,但这里的风景多了一份江南的婉约。在宝界山顶俯视烟波浩渺蠡湖太湖,在馆舍山庄偶遇一池含苞待放的荷花,这些都让Lindsey觉得很激动,很新奇。也让我感受到了生活在无锡这样一个将现代化与自然结合得如此完美的城市,是很幸福的。

那天晚上和另外两对女生去了南长街。我们既目睹了南长街无与伦比的繁华,也穿过清明桥,欣赏了南下塘独特的江南风味,窄窄的小巷,保留下来的民屋,还有各种店里民国的旗袍,别致的首饰,五彩的丝巾,传统的布包… 这些都让她们更加深入地了解到了中国博大精深的文化。那是一个很愉快的夜晚。

Homestay这次经历难能可贵,是我暑假生活中十分有意思的一段故事。同时,也让我对今后去美国的学习与生活充满了期待!

三天的时间说长不长,说短不短,但却在交流中飞快地流走了。我和我接待的美国表演者Marie在一起的游玩和互相的交流中慢慢地熟悉起来,也对对方有了更多地了解。

第一天晚上我们在家里用的晚餐,Marie尝试了使用筷子,不过用筷子这个技巧她还需要一段时间来掌握呢!

第二天我们去了长广溪,因为Marie喜欢大自然。在游玩的过程中,她在我的“询问”下拍了不少照片,嘿嘿。走了一上午,先在南禅寺解决了午饭,我们来到清名桥步行街,算是饭后散步~结果这一散,我的好导游的名号算是没了,我们找不到目的地了!不过这倒让我们在没什么人的小路上好好欣赏了古运河。下午就是一直期待的表演,不得不说,真的很棒。我看到了上午游玩中她并没有表现出来的认真的另一面。

晚上,我们在音乐方面进行了交流,也算是东西方乐器、文化的交流。我发现吹笛子真的很神奇。

第三天,他们在外面游玩和参观了一天,因为Marie太累了,我们取消了体验地铁的环节,这算是小小的遗憾。终于到了最后一天,说不失落是假的,但还是很开心能和她相处这三天的。

在和Marie的相处中我也了解了更多关于国外生活、学习的事情,当然很多时候是我提问,她回答。我发现找话题对于生活环境不相同的我们真是有点困难,不过我们还是有很多共同爱好的,聊天还是很愉快的。这次的接待不仅让我结识了一个外国朋友,也让我更多的了解了美国生活和文化。

 “灿鸿”来临之际,也到了与戴维斯长笛访问团的美国朋友们分别的时刻。区区三天的时光,这样短暂,却使我和远在大洋彼岸的Shannon Miller成为了朋友。我们一起度过的这三天已经成为美好的回忆,被我埋藏于心。

 回想起那个下午,我们初次见面。你一见到我就亲切地跟我问好,还向我招手,成熟的脸庞上荡漾着明艳的笑容。相比之下,害羞的我却不知道该做些什么,那些难以掩饰的紧张你也一定发现了吧。事先就知道你已经大二了,已经是成年人,我觉得我们不会有很多共同语言,但与你沟通一点也不困难。我们分享了各自的爱好,交流了各自国家文化、社会生活的不同之处。尽管我用着另一种较生疏的语言,我们依然顺利地了解到彼此更多,初见时的那份紧张渐渐消逝。

 我们一起去了荡口古镇,看得出来你很喜欢那里,也很惊叹于中国的古代建筑,我很自豪地把中国的古文明介绍给你。在学校里,中美合作的音乐会中,你在台上表演时一丝不苟的神情一直吸引着我的目光。与你平时亲切爱笑的样子不同,台上的你严肃认真,很有魅力,很帅气,让我学到了一些我没有的东西。

 第一天我们就互换了礼物,谢谢带着你友好情谊的礼物,也希望你喜欢我的礼物。分别的时候刮起了风,下着小雨,我们都在笑着,心中却满是不舍。希望多年之后还能再次见到你,也许在中国无锡,也许在美国加州。也希望能和你一直保持联系,即使我们远隔万里!

In the past few days, a group of special guests came to Wuxi—students from California who would perform in our school. As volunteers, my family and I entertained one of the students for three days, it was really a precious experience for me.

The boy is called Drew. He is two years older than me. He is tall and thin. He also has curly hair. He has a special habit that he can’t eat any meat or dairy productions. When I asked him for the reason, to my surprise, not because any religion belief, he just doesn’t like the smell of things like that. He has a great interest of Chinese culture especially paintings and music. He also told me that he wanted to learn some Chinese from us. His father Jeff also came with him. We talked a lot and found that we shared the same love for basketball. In addition, which is most important, both Jeff and Drew love drinking tea. Jeff loves black tea while Drew loves green tea.

On the first day, we met at the school and watched their rehearsing. In the evening, we went to a vegetarian restaurant. Drew liked the tofu and the gluten in Wuxi. On the second day, I took Drew and his friend to Wuxi Museum. There are a large number of Chinese traditional paintings and handwritings. Drew liked them very much.

After lunch, we drove them to the school and enjoyed their performance in the afternoon. Drew can not only play the flute but also has played the piano for one year. The show was excellent. Each of us gave a cap to them as a small gift. After that we together went to have a great buffet reception.

In the evening, I invited Drew and Jeff to take a boat trip on the canal. They were excited to watch the wonderful view on the Nanchang Street. Jeff told me that he had never seen a busier street at night in the USA before. He also visited many Chinese bars in the street. We didn’t be with each other on the third day. But he emphasized that he had a great time that day after he came back. In the evening, I taught him how to play guitar. He was so smart that he learned very fast. Then we played billiards together. It seemed that he was unlucky enough that he hit the white ball into the hole five times!

After that, we took a lot of photos and exchanged our presents. He sent a T-shirt, a blanket and a shopping bag to us. We prepared bottles of tea and a beautiful teapot for him. It was an unforgettable night. We didn’t go to sleep until very late. The next morning, it’s time to say goodbye. We gave our address and postcode to each other. I’m sure I will miss them soon. I hope I can visit them one day and we welcome them to Wuxi again any time.

期待已久的美国友人终于到来了,初次见面时感觉与自己所想有着很大的出入。这位叫Efren 的阳光男孩,并没有想象中那么难沟通反倒初次见面就给了我一个大大的拥抱,让彼此间的距离瞬间拉近了。虽然只是短暂的三天接触,而且大部分时间Efren都要排练及表演,实际交流的时间也不过大半天。当然我也是倾吾所有所知。在我眼中的他是一个独立自主却又十分外向的男孩。在美国早早租房独立居住,也能适应中国美食和筷子的使用。至于外向也是显而易见,与同行人员虽然只有训练时有交集,但却在这几天成了无话不谈的朋友。然而,离别总是伤感的,他的旅程还要继续,我们也交换了各自家乡的特产,我相信每一次的离别总是为了更好的重逢,也希望他有一次完美的中国行!

  这个暑假,我非常荣幸的接待了来自美国的戴维斯长笛乐团的同学们。在短短三天之中,我们建立起了非常深厚的友谊。

  在他们来的第二天,我们有幸欣赏到了他们所演奏的长笛乐曲。在悠扬的乐曲声中,我不禁对他们产生了一丝敬佩之意。在高中时,他们仍然不放弃自己的爱好并坚持练习长笛,但我却早早在初中时就将手中的乐器放下,尘封了两年。

  在第三天的上午,我带着我的小伙伴前往蠡湖公园欣赏无锡的美景,并在晚上乘船游玩了运河古乡。小伙伴也是对江南水乡的景色赞不绝口,但却很鲜明的指出了一个问题,“这些水都太脏了。”小伙伴毫不吝啬的说道。此时我不禁有点尴尬,却也无法辩驳。

  在最后一天,我们送走了来自美国的戴维斯长笛乐团,送他们前往下一站——上海。衷心祝愿他们旅途愉快,一路顺风,并且在上海能够体会到更多有关中国的文化与风情!
